Fraudulent, no customer support.

Pros

It seems simple to use. Beyond this there is nothing to like. Do yourself a favor and NEVER give them your credit card.

Cons

The bank connection never would work properly and none of my support emails were ever answered beyond "so, did we help you?" as if they'd done something. I vollyied emails this way for 3 weeks before giving up. Then they billed me for dirrect deposit when they said it was free, total fraud. There is NO PHONE for support and emails go unanswered.

Slow servers and downtimes have been experienced, lack of integration with third party apps is also a major let down.

Value for Money

Pros

I love that they are completely free for all that you get. I love being able to keep track of my receipts and not keep them. It is great for writing customer invoices.

Cons

They need to develop a system so if you have your bank account connecting and using the app to take pics of receipts to only show the transaction that you posted through the app so you don't have duplicate items. Need more features on the app. Have to enter in item description every time. I want the system to remember a transaction like a check so that I don't have to write in the description every time what that check was for.

Pros

They're working hard on updates and new features. Very clean UI. Email invoicing is great. Staff have been generally supportive.

Cons

Some hiccups with things such as receipts -- if you return an item there's no real way to mark that return in the receipts section where the original purchase was marked. Multiple email addresses not supported in all places. Payroll doesn't do anything but the actual calculations -- doesn't actually file any paperwork or even fill it out for you to send in which would be nice.

There is a small learning curve to master how wave runs but thanks to their awesome support you can do it. I am one who works with my hands as a finish carpenter. I am far from even wanting to do accounting as I lack at paperwork. Wave makes it possible and I love it.

Pros

It functions very well and is an easy system to master.

Cons

One feature I hope they come up with is to be able to type in an amount in transaction and wave will find all those transactions that match. Bank of America has this feature. So why not WAVE!

For small businesses looking after their books Wave is hard to beat. You only pay when you scale up your services. They cover almost everything you can think of from basic accounting to invoicing and estimates. For premium pricing you can add in payroll and professional accountant to help out. It accepts payments right off your phone too.

Likes Least

The thing I would say I like least is that it still seems relatively unknown so some integration are missing. The only choice for payment gateways are through Wave's proprietary card system (which is fantastic and priced great) or Stripe, it would be nice to be able to tie Paypal into that mix. Or to tie Wave in with the time tracker / project management tool we use.

Recommendations

I would say use it for a year to really get it up and running to see how well it operates.

Waveapps is one of the best free payroll and invoicing tools out there. The invoicing works great, it easily connects to all your bank accounts and it allows you to share your account with an accounting professional. I've been using Waveapps for over a year now and haven't had any issues. It integrates directly with google apps as well, so sending invoices via gmail with Wave is great so that it doesn't get caught in any spam.

Likes Least

There's no mobile app yet besides an app for adding in receipts. There have been frequent updates and changes to any of the issues that I had which were very minor.

Recommendations

Try it out, its free and there's no downside to trying it out. If you are just starting a business or have a small business and looking for a way to manage your books and invoices, test it out.

The setup of the accounts. Template for basic business (ie. sell cookies) is there, and adding to it is easy (ie. sell balloons in the cookie shop), but I've found many clients have issues such basic configurations. Perhaps they lack foundational accounting knowledge or web app knowledge, or simply the confidence to make such adjustments.

Recommendations

Limit your scope to that of a simple business, with one or a few revenue lines, and the basics such as no investments (ie. funds to invest extra cash).

Pros

For free software you can't do much better. Feature rich, easy to navigate and intuitive. Great online solution to documenting expenses for small businesses.

I can automatically invoice my customers, accept credit card payments from them for these invoices and easily send receipts for all payment types.

Pros

Makes recurring invoicing and tracking payment of these invoices very easy. The software will automatically invoice customers and automatically send reminder emails when invoices are unpaid. Once payment has been made a receipt can be sent with a click of two buttons. This process was only a small part of my job but it took up so much time... not any more.

Cons

I wish it had a wider feature set. I could use something to help manage our trust account. Unable to customize software to more closely match how we handle receivables.

I have moved from a manual accounting system to an automated one. The transition has not been painful as it generally is.

Pros

I found the program incredibly easy to use. Easy accessibility gives it a major plus. The lay out and design are simple and pertinent with the Dashboard providing you with key information while you're on the go. I also like the report feature as it allows me to judge the current state of the business anywhere and anytime. For a micro business, the fact that it's free is a major drawcard. I'm also impressed by the Payroll feature, even though I haven't cause to use it.

Cons

Being in South Africa, some of the Accounting terms and practices are a bit different. Understandable though.

Having used quickbooks previously I thought this was a great way to save some money on a new business adventure. I quickly learned that this is not a place where you want to skimp out on features, and ended up paying more in my time. If you you have more time on your hands and you can put in the time then this software will probably work well for you. If you have multiple businesses and another job, forget it, it isn't worth the hassle.

Pros

Full Disclosure - Used this software 2 years ago.
Free and allowed us to sync with our bank accounts. Payroll wasn't included but was a cheap additional ($5/month?)

Cons

Payroll had severe limitations in NYS, Additionally after I moved away from the software I forgot to grab our payroll reports. It cost me $15 to retrieve them.

Pros

As a freelancer who does big and tiny jobs, it's easy to lose track of my invoice activity who I've invoiced for what, who has paid, etc. With Wave, I've got customized invoice templates that are easy to fill out with saved client information, etc. I know who I've billed, how long ago, and how long it took to get paid.

Recently, I began using the credit card feature. The fee is the same as PayPal, but it's integrated more smoothly with my electronic invoice.

Cons

Quibble: I'd like to have one more column for a date range of the service I've provided. (I sometimes use the "Items" column to include the date range, but I'd prefer the item be the name of a task and the dates to have their own column.)

Extremely simple interface. Fast/Responsive. Superb deal for single user. Decent customization options.

Cons

As with any web-based software, its availability can be affected by problems with your own internet connection, as well as larger infrastructure issues. During recent DNS attacks, and when Amazon's server products were down, I was unable to access Wave. This is not the fault of the developers, but is an inherent risk with web-based software.

Pros

Wave is free, and the basic accounting features work. The bank transaction feature is very nice, if it works for you.

Cons

Bank transaction import did not work for me. Transactions took over two weeks to post to my account. When I contacted customer support about this, I got a generic response and then nothing for a week. Even for free, that kind of non-responsiveness is troubling for a service I'm trusting with my information.

Mobile app is useless if you use your google account to sign in to the web app.
